Kemin Industries is a research and development firm that helps to create everything from custom dyes for medications to ingredients that make food last longer. Scientists are able to think outside the box and have the freedom to create new and innovative concepts and new designs. Clark Glass and VIVA teamed up on the firm’s facility.

Clark Glass began in 1953 with Charles (Slim) Clark Glass Shop in his very own house. His son soon took over (Charles) Bud Clark almost a decade later and came to be the name you see today. Being passed down through three generations to date, Clark Glass has grown into a very successful family business and houses both ironworkers and glaziers to get the job done.
